Titanfall shows off the Ogre and Stryder mech classes

titanfall

Looks like Hammond Robotics was not a branch of Top Gear after all, as those teaser videos from that fictitious company introduced two new classes for Titanfall.

At the Spike VGX Awards last night, Respawn Entertainment debuted the following two new mechs. First off, the Ogre:

And then second, the Stryder:

Kaiju beware! The Ogre looks like your typical heavy class, which sacrifices speed for power and strength, while the Stryder goes in the opposite direction and trumps the other Titans with agility and quick moves.

Should make Titanfall that much more interesting when it launches next year on Xbox One.

Because he's the writer that Lazygamer deserves, but not the one it actually needs right now. So we'll hunt him. Because he can't take it. Because he's not a hero. He's a loud-mouthed journalist, a watchful procrastinator. A dork knight.

    This looks like it has serious potential.

    I still don’t see the appeal of Titanfall (or as I like to call it the unholy spawn of Brink, Call of Duty and Mechwarrior), but the VGX did make me aware of Hello Games’ No Man Sky. If those guys can pull it off, then we might have a pretty awesome little indie space exploration title on our hands.

      If you are a shoote rfan and you loved games like Unreal Tournament, Quake and the like then you are going to absolutely love Titan Fall.

      It simply plays excellently and is my most anticipated title

        splosions for the win

        • Weanerdog

          and mechs, I wish it were winter, we could make it into ice blocks and skate on it! and then melt it in the springtime.
